A storm is brewing in this funny and charming fable about generational differences in the workplace. The statistics are in at the Weather Consumer Satisfaction Bureau and they're not pretty: customer satisfaction is at an all-time low. Can Bureau Director Wally get the older and newer clouds to work out their long-simmering differences and combine their unique strengths to provide a better weather experience for their valued customers? With wisdom, humor and a few surprises, this book shows how the clouds (and indeed members of any multi-generational workforce) can work together - On Cloud Nine.

Book Description:

"Illustrations by Eldon Dedini

A recent survey reveals that customer satisfaction with the weather is at an all-time low. It's up to Wally, director of the Weather Consumer Satisfaction Bureau, to sort things out. In this witty fable, the root of the problem is a disagreement between old and new clouds. The upstarts think technology is the answer, while the old guard says there's no substitute for the tried and true. The resulting storms are having a direct effect on customers, who wonder if they will ever see sunny skies again. Can Wally reconcile these seemingly conflicting views and leverage the unique strengths of all the clouds into a successful, customer-friendly plan?

On Cloud Nine presents real lessons about what is valuable in the workplace: balancing the past and the future, encouraging diversity of ideas, and more. The story is followed by simple yet powerful tools that will help readers apply these lessons to their own work and organizations."
